New York Times interview
Despite excitement about new technologies to support climate mitigation efforts, there are innovations that humans have little or nothing to do with. Botanist Diana Beresford-Kroeger speaks with Cara Buckley of The New York Times. What can we learn from the systems in the natural world that we are still discovering? What would it look like to prioritize protecting and rebuilding nature’s own resources? And how can we foster a greater connection between people and their surroundings? We’ll hear from a scientist who listens to the trees.

Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a world recognized author, medical biochemist and botanist. She has a unique combination of western scientific knowledge and the traditional concepts of the ancient world. Orphaned in Ireland in her youth, Beresford-Kroeger was educated by elders who instructed her in the Brehon knowledge of plants and nature.
Told she was the last child of ancient Ireland and to one day bring this knowledge to a troubled future, Beresford-Kroeger has done exactly that.
Her Bioplan is an ambitious plan encouraging ordinary people to develop a new relationship with nature, to join together to replant the global forest. She shares this dream with Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson who pronounced: Diana and I “want people to see the forest and the trees, and the wildlife abounding in wild environments, in fine detail. We want native species to be valued and cultivated one by one for the special place they have in the deep history of the land.”
